Royal Johor Country Club
A host of several big championships, Royal Johor Country Club was inaugurated as a nine-hole course in the 1960s, and had its second nine opened in the 70s. Today, this tract is one of Johorâ€™s most popular courses, mainly due to its challenging layout.
It plays to a par-72 and measures 6,964 yards off the championship tee boxes. And of the two nines, the inward stretch is marginally more difficult than the opening nine.
The third hole, a short par-3, is a real gem. With the thick jungle in the background, it features a two-tiered figure-8 like shaped green that is guarded by a cluster of bunkers.
The closing hole is another tough test, stretching 452 yards, this uphill par-4 is not often reached in regulation and has dampened the spirits of many who have not treated it with the respect it deserves.
